If things have felt "stop and go" thanks to last month’s eclipses and all the retrograde planetary action we’ve been getting; this month brings us some much-needed momentum. Not only is Mercury moving forward again, but aggressive Mars also turns direct; which should help us with getting plans, projects, and initiatives off the ground. Meanwhile, we’re still in eclipse season with one more eclipse to go; the Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 11, 2018. Under this eclipse, we should expect dramatic new beginnings, fresh starts, and life-changing opportunities that span themes that cover confidence, creativity, romance, and authenticity. With the shifts and changes that are still afoot, it’s a good thing that Mars will be moving back into grounded and responsible Capricorn by mid-month. With Mars in one of their favorite places to be, the energy in the air shouldn’t feel as jarring as it has been over the past few weeks, especially with Mars turning direct by August 27. Couple Mars grounding vibes with the earthy energy of Virgo season (August 23) and we should be able to find the motivation, energy, and the clarity to move into the next phase of our lives. Meanwhile, the Full Moon in Pisces on August 26 will stop by to help us with turning a dream into something real.

Although Gemini season is in full swing, the pace this month slows down significantly once the planets begin shifting into cautious Cancer, pushing us to lean on our intuition rather than making snap judgments. At the same time, active Mars will also begin its two-month retrograde; backtracking through the signs of Aquarius and Capricorn and helping us to make sure we’re not blindly following the rules in place or investing our energy into futile endeavors. Planet Neptune (dreams, illusions, compassion) also goes retrograde this month in Pisces, pushing us to see through illusions and to see things as they are. In fact, with a Full Moon in no-nonsense Capricorn happening this month as well, many of us are due for a reality check.
